Cookstown Greens' organic shallots are deliciously savory when raw, with a more delicate sweet flavour when cooked. Shallots are a type of onion wrapped in paper-thin layers of copper skin and divided into clusters of individually wrapped segments. These shallots can be substituted into any recipe in place of onion - about three shallots for one small onion.
Cookstown Greens is a family-run, organic farm located 1 hour north of Toronto, in Essa township. They leave part of their land untouched and use non-intensive farming methods, which contributes to their farm’s biodiversity. They are well known for our quality and flavour of their products.
Through a variety of methods such as green manure rotation, compost, and sub surface irrigation (this uses 30-40% less water than sprinkler methods), they foster a healthy ecosystem on their farm.
